    >>and it invariably includes a couple of glasses of wine (shall we consider that a vice?)

    No, it is considered decent living. And I should know!

    Batch bridges and tailpieces. Mark starts the buffing today. He told me once buffing is brutal work. Soon The Campellone Deluxe Silverfoxx Model begins-e843a293-c962-4627-89d4-38d2147ac1f8-jpg

    Thank you Steve, I was torn between the Dark Cherry or the colour that you see.
    I asked the opinion of my wife June , who has better taste than myself and I had
    to agree , most viewers have said the same. Mark has made a terrific job of it.

    Cheers Steve,

    Including one's spouse in guitar purchase decisions is brilliant. Many here should take note.

    And you got the Original "Wes Montgomery Style" knobs.
    Most people don't realize it, but the Gold top-hats were on Wes's Original "Wes". And Mark put TI's Jazz Swings on it! They will be a little bright at 1st, but when the break in, Oh my God, Perfecto!

    Nothing but good stuff can happen to our guy Alan.
    This, will be perfect for him. I am very excited for you.

    Thanks to Vinny for posting the pics during this build culminating in the "Masterpiece"
    we see here. It has exceeded my expectations, I knew it would be very good, but to
    me it is a work of art and great Kudos to Mark Campellone for its production.
    Please excuse me while I salivate sitting in a chair looking at the pics.

    Thanks Joe, I must point out that Vinny also very kindly sent the TI's to Mark on my behalf

    As a dog with two tails Steve, hopefully Mark is shipping the guitar early next week
    and if the Gremlins in Customs & Excise will allow it to be delivered intact this month
    all will be good.

    Not as far as i am aware Greg, its possible that not all of the batch comes via our Forum ,
    the Cameo might belong to a.n. other. Mark furnishes pics of the build to the customer, in
    our case Nick71 and I had ours posted via Vinny who enjoys the build process ,and it is a
    good method to highlight the guitars in view of our large membership numbers.

    Nick and Alan asked me to post there build process. Mark was happy to oblige but he is very customer focused. Pics need a customer OK. Many do not want the world to see.
    The Cameo owner is a forum member and I am sure will post a NGD. Also I am sure this latest Cameo will be on the Campellone website soon.

    Wow!
    The headstock reminds me of the Citation/Unity guitars I’ve seen in the past.
    That color looks like a very difficult color to spray. It is perfectly even.
    Mark, you are amazing. Trees dream of ending up on your workbench someday. Amazing.

    Gorgeous as that Cameo is, the one I could look at every single day of my life and never tire of is that Chesnut model. Wow. Understated but deep down elegance. That's a guitar to grow old with.

    Hi, I am proud that Mark Campellone posted the Cameo that he just finished for me. I will travel to Rhode Island to pick it up. I did the same thing when the Special I have was completed years ago. Thank you all for your comments!

  39. #188
    Don....a huge Congrats ! Mark really knocked it out of the park.
    The wood on the back is unbelievable.
    What a masterpiece. Guitars like that you have to stare at it for awhile before you can play it.
    You can have a Cameo or pay way more for a new standard L5.
    Basically the Campellone version of a Citation for cheaper than a new Gibson L5. Sweet !
